Amanda Seyfried Doing "Lovelace"

Although her fans may find it a bit hard to swallow, actress Amanda Seyfried ("Red Riding Hood"), will star as adult film actress Linda Lovelace, in the upcoming bio-pic "Lovelace".

Lovelace starred in the 1972 X-rated feature "Deep Thoat", before becoming an anti-pornography advocate.

Peter Sarsgaard is in talks to play Lovelace's husband, 'Chuck Traynor'.

Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman ("The Celluloid Closet") will direct a screenplay by W. Merritt Johnson and Andy Bellin, adapting the biography "The Complete Linda Lovelace," by author Eric Danville.

Producers are Avi Lerner, Heidi Jo Markel and Laura Rister.

Production will start January 2012.

In other "Linda Lovelace" news, writer/director Matthew Wilder continues developing his "Ordeal" feature project, based on Lovelace's autobiography, with Malin Akerman ("Watchmen") attached to star.
